  • The Deering Eagle II Openback banjo features the ground breaking, patent pending Twenty-Ten Tone Ring which is a completely original Deering design that gives the banjo an extremely clear tone.  

    I would assimilate this tone to be closest to that of a tubaphone tone ring, as both are made with brass and have the warmth that is characteristic with brass.  But this banjo is clearer as the mid range frequencies are enhanced (the frequencies the human ear hears the best).
    This is an incredible clawhammer banjo.
